    Hi all,

    I'm about to get my local mechanic to service my S3, i've made a list of things for him to do, can anyone think of anything else that is worth doing?

    fix overheating problem
    fix air conditioning problem
    fix fog light problem
    fix rear washer problem

    change oil filter
    change air filter
    change fuel filter
    change polen filter

    change engine oil
    change gearbox oil
    change haldex oil (4x4 system)
    change brake fluid
    change power steering fluid
    change coolant fluid

    change spark plugs
    change cambelt and tensioners
    change water pump (for metal propeller version)

    change hi beam bulbs to white xeon
    change fot light bulbs to white xeon
    activiate 2nd rear fog light (if possible? it's blanked out be default)
    remove and replace fan aux unit under battery (part never fixed overheating problem)

    thanks

    Be prepared to spend a lot of money that is a big list I think the S3 only has one rear fog light might be as well to get your car MOT'd at the same time get it all done at the same time for convenience.

    If he's changing the haldex and gearbox oil.. may as well do the rear diff oil too.

    I agree, plus get him to take sump off and clean oil pick up and oil strainer. this is a must if you havent had it done. it cost me a couple of G's when it starved my engine of oil. replace oil breather pipes or clean them. thats what im in the process of doing at the min.

    thanks,

    remember, the problems are going to be paid for by warrenty, so the cambelt change is only going to cost me the parts, because the water pump can be part of the overheating problem even if it isn't lol....

    as for doing it myself, i can not be arsed lol
